Rather cheap rather good-tasting EAA in Europe.

Postby aliquis » Sat Nov 08, 2008 4:23 am

I've been using EAA for quite some time, first Eiselt EsaPro, then tested Fairing Amino Rush and now today I got BodyScience EAA and EAA-X (Swedish brands.)

American people already have Purple Wraath which seems very nice:
http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/cont ... ml?sel=851 52.95 $ / 1084 gram.
And Xtend BCAA:
http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/sciv ... ml?sel=439 42.95 $ / 1016 gram.

Shipping to Europe is rather expensive though and VAT + administrational fees adds a significant amount of money.

Anyway, I know you british people can order your EAA from myprotein.co.uk:
http://www.myprotein.co.uk/bulk-powders ... ino-acids/ £ 36.4 / 1 kg.
But it's unflavored and the amino acids don't taste good at all. It do have the additional benefit of including tryptophan though which you can't buy legally in most countries because it counts as a restricted drug since quite a few people died of poisoning from a shipment from a japanese manufacturer which used genetically modified bacteria.

Anyway, I think it's safe to assume the amino acids are made synthetically in all cases, or well, maybe it count as biological since it's probably bacteria which produces them.

At least myprotein, Eiselt (EsaPro) and I also believe Fairing (amino rush) claim their products to be vegan.

I haven't actually asked regarding my new BodyScience EAA/EAA-X but just assumed, I'm not worried about the amino acids but the aromas may contain something of animal origin I guess, it also looks pink but pink makes it seem somewhat unlikely that there are any E120 in there and they don't mention any coloring on the label.



Anyway, why do I wrote all that crap? :D

Because 800 gram of BodyScience EAA cost 249 sek here:
http://shop1.mmsports.se/product.php?pr ... 268&page=1
Which ends up being:
(249 / 0.8) * Swedish krona = 25.1291667 UK£
Which is far less than the UK one and then you have to consider that it taste much better than both amino rush and esapro. You still notice the amino acids but it taste very decent for what it is. Content is at least 90% EAA and the rest is acid and aroma and sweetener and such.

I also bought EAA-X which cost 299 sek for the same amount:
http://shop1.mmsports.se/product.php?pr ... 268&page=1
That ends up being somewhat more expensive, which is probably because it's a newer product and it has 80% EAA and 10% citrulline-malate instead of 90% EAA.
The taste of this one is somewhat better than the one above, a little more sour.


I have no idea if they ship to other countries but I guess one could always mail them and ask. They are rather big, have (national :D) price warranty and a real store (or two I believe, at least?) so it should be safe to order from them.


Anyway, if there are any swedes reading this I would really recommend it (if it's vegan) since BodyScience EAA taste the second best of all swedish ones and is the cheapest, and EAA-X taste even better and is still cheaper than the competition :D
And I would recommend it to any people living in EU which can't get a decent EAA-supplement in their country as well.

Purple wraaths 1082 gram would end up being:
53 U.S. dollars = 33.7859374 UK£

So more expensive but it's a cooler product with some vitamins and added Beta Alanine, Citrulline Malate, Betaine Anhydrous, Ginger (from root), L-Norvaline.



I also mailed Controlled Labs and they claimed there are no products of animal origin in White Flood or Green Magnitude, but I'm not much of a fan of NO-products, but anyway.

The GABA in WF may be a restricted drug in your area.
Anyway they look cool so I would like to try them :D


Sorry for my spam dialogue, get used to them! :D
